Wide spread musical background with influences from early electronica musicians like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze in the 70s, passing world and minimal music, fusion and classical jazz in the 80s, and classical music in the 90s. Then rediscovering the electronica at the end of the last millennium. Highlights of the course: Emerson. Lake and Palmer, Brian Eno, Steve Reich, Oregon, Therje Rypdal, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Miles Davis, Glen Gould, and as causer of my first attempts in producing music without having any musical education: SND and Jan Jelinek.
Starting with my sound creations in 2000 using solely computers and laptops. First software was the Melody Maker, a notation program, followed by Storm, Reason and testing out Fruity Loops. But the most satisfying combination is a set-up of Ableton Live and Native Instruments Reaktor till today, because of the chance to built up new sound structures very quickly. This more spontaneous way of creation was translated from my fine arts approach: art is a perishable thing which has to be revealed instantly by catching the ‘kairos’. Like in photography the right moment is a core factor of success, and not without cause there is a close relationship between my visual arts and music. The idea of synaesthesia haunts me since I have seen “Pink Floyd in Pompeji” in the 70s. From my pint of view the value of a movie mostly depends from its score; vice versa music can evoke inner pictures by listening. Thus the scope of my musical approach has always been influenced by these two poles of perception. You may call it Ambient, Minimal, or simple Electronica, I call it “something similar to music”.
